Sue assumes two fellows in charge to be enough (7)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

suffice

Here is my best explanation:

'be enough' is the definition.

(seen before)

'sue assumes two fellows in charge' is the subsidiary indication.

'assumes' indicates putting letters inside.

'two fellows' becomes 'ff'.

'in charge' becomes 'ic'.

'ff'+'ic'='ffic'

'sue' going around 'ffic' is 'suffice'.

'to' is the link.

(Other definitions for suffice that I've seen before include "Be enough", "Serve - do" and "Be adequate".)
