Pest forced a team to withdraw (4,5)


I believe the answer is:

step aside

Here is my best explanation:

'withdraw' is the definition.


'pest forced a team' is the subsidiary indication.

'forced' is an anagram indicator.

'team' becomes 'side' (I've seen this before**).

'pest' with letters rearranged gives 'step'.


'to' is the link.
