Unexciting? Accordingly cut line (4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

dull

Here is my best explanation:

'unexciting?' is the definition.

('dull' is associated in meaning with 'unexciting')

'accordingly cut line' is the subsidiary indication.

'accordingly' becomes 'duly'.

'cut' means to remove the last letter.

'line' becomes 'l'.

'duly' with its last letter removed is 'dul'.

'dul'+'l'='dull'

This clue was last seen in The Independent

(Other definitions for dull that I've seen before include "mat", "Drab", "Apathetic", "Cloudy -- tedious", "Lacking brightness", "Lusterless or uninteresting", "Matt; overcast", "Not interesting", "Flat" and "Lacking excitement".)
