Motion forward, also deviating (8)


I believe the answer is:


Here is my best explanation:

'motion' is the definition.


'forward also deviating' is the subsidiary indication.

'forward' becomes 'prop'.

'deviating' is an anagram indicator.

'also' with letters rearranged gives 'osal'.


This clue was last seen in The Times
