In this coaching course filmed exclusively for CV Academy, QPR lead professional development phase coach Paul Furlong takes his players through a series of practices designed to develop their ability to link and combine with a central striker.
The session starts with a movement game in which players are encouraged to use different passing combinations to work the ball to the number nine – first with throws and then, after some technical work, with the ball at feet. It then progresses to a phase of play and finally a directional game, both of which feature conditions that encourage playing through and combining with a number nine.
