(synonyms)

'pride will take a fall at court' is the wordplay.
I cannot quite understand how this works, but

'court' could be 'ct' (abbreviation used in road names) and 'ct' is found in the answer.
This accounts for all the letters.
This may be the basis of clue (or it may be nonsense).

'that' acts as a link.
