Defensively Potter positions the team in a low to medium block, thickens the lines and limits space on the flanks.
Regardless of the formation used the distance between the lines is always minimal, the players compact the space and position themselves very close together.
High pressing sometimes turns the back five into a back three with the team supporting each other with lines forming more of a 3-1-5-1 or 5-1-3-1 formation.
Developing the attack in the offensive third they raise the tempo of the game and bring more players into the offensive third trying to overload the wings.
Regardless of the chosen side they move in a compact block always having at least one player positioned slightly deeper to assist the action.
