How do you trade the sideways market?

i am able to trade the morning market session which is from time 9:45 am to 11:45 am but find it difficult to have the opportunity to enter the trade in the afternoon session specially from 12 pm till 2 pm when the stocks direction is generally in the sideways. how do you trade the sideways market, any specific strategy, can you please share it with me.
finding really difficult to even scalp also in the afternoon session.
