Jose Gomes presents a detailed match-preparation session that he used in his role as head coach at Reading. Setting his own team up in a 1-4-3-3 formation, Gomes works on defensive organisation and effective attacking transition against a side playing in a 1-5-2-3. The session covers a number of principles, including defending switches of play, the moment of attacking transition and playing in behind.
