Only just - and with difficulty (6)


I believe the answer is:


I believe this is a triple definition!

'only' is the first definition.

'just' is the second definition.

'and' acts as a link.

'with difficulty' is the third definition.
(I've seen this before)

(Other definitions for hardly that I've seen before include "Not much" , "Not quite "It seems unlikely!"" , "Barely, scarcely" , "Almost not" , "With great difficulty" .)

I've seen this clue in the Evening Standard.
