Glue to fix a step (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

paste

'glue' is the definition.
(I know that glue can be written as paste)

'fix a step' is the wordplay.
'fix' is an anagram indicator.
'a'+'step'='astep'
'astep' with letters rearranged gives 'PASTE'.

'to' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for paste that I've seen before include "Adhesive gum" , "Watery cement" , "Tapes (anag.)" , "It is used to stick wallpaper" , "foie gras" .)

I've seen this clue in The Daily Express and The Mirror.
