Short of money (4,2)

Ross

I think it could be either:

hard up

strapped

'short of money' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

This is all the clue.

(Other definitions for hard up that I've seen before include "Short of money - it's tough at the top" , "Having little money, almost skint" , "boracic" , "It's not easy to be in straitened circumstances" , "Informally short of money - that's tough" .)

I've seen this clue in the Sydney Morning Herald and The Telegraph.
