how do i make my team just better defensively as a whole, i seem to concede to many goals and it is annoying me.

i have tried a few different things like a four defenders set to defend and support etc but i just cant seem to find a good balance between attack and defense. any general suggestions. im playing as mk dons so my defenders are not the greatest but for the championship there ok. please and thank you :)

I always found it helps a little to set one of the CB's to man marking and the other to zonal, whilst the fullbacks play man coverage. It's not a instant fix for the defense, but I found it helped a bit.

i can suggest you to put tackling on hard and set they'r creativity without passing, crossinng etc. I hope works a bit better your defending. Good luck.

I'd recommend John Potter of St Mirren, his stats aren't the best but he gives 100% and puts himself on the line. He does a good job in both Championship & League 1.
