Salvationists beat the Devil (5)


I believe the answer is:


'the devil' is the definition.
('Satan' can be a synonym of 'devil')

'salvationists beat' is the wordplay.
'salvationists' becomes 'sa' (I've seen this in other clues).
'beat' becomes 'tan' (I've seen this before).

(Other definitions for satan that I've seen before include "The devil, Beelzebub" , "Fallen archangel" , "Fiend" , "Prince of Darkness" , "Apollyon" .)

I've seen this clue in The Telegraph.
