Making good progress over puzzle finally -- tend to be a far from lateral thinker (3,5)


I think it could be either:

Which length description are you looking for?:



'tend to be a far from lateral thinker' is the definition.
I can't judge whether this defines the answer.

'making good progress over puzzle finally' is the wordplay.
'making good progress' becomes 'ontrack'.
'over' means one lot of letters goes inside another.
'finally' says to take the final letters.
The final letter of 'puzzle' is 'e'.
'ontrack' placed around 'e' is 'ONE-TRACK'.

(Other definitions for one-track that I've seen before include "This mind can hold only a single opinion at a time" , "This mind is limited in scope to dealing with single item" , "Obsessed by single idea" , "Obsessed with a single subject" , "No racket for inflexible mind" .)

I've seen this clue in The Guardian.
