Cover and Stopper in Offside Trap (Higher DLine)

Recommended Posts

How does cover and stopper affect the offside trap and does it make it less effective?

I was always worried that it stopped the pair staying in line and stepping up to trap the opposition forwards

The cover duty should never be used when you play with an offside trap. The covering defender will drop deeper and break the trap.

I would only consider using the stopper duty in conjunction with an offside trap if I was playing with a back-three.
