getting down the right [football (soccer)]


Senior Member
Hi everyone. This is football (soccer). I don't understand the phrase "getting down" here. What does it mean?

73 mins: Young the creator United look rattled. Herrera passes the ball straight out of play to the delight of the Liberty crowd. So far, the visitors haven't really threatened since going behind - but Ashley Young tries to change that, getting down the right and crossing. Depay's header is easy for Fabianski though.
