'slip fielder' is the definition.
The answer and definition can be both acts as well as being singular nouns.
Perhaps they are linked in a way I don't understand?

'public disagreement about finale to match' is the wordplay.
'public' becomes 'overt' (both can mean well-known or unconcealed).
'disagreement' becomes 'row' (row is a kind of disagreement).
'about' is a charade indicator (letters next to each other).
'finale to' says to take the final letters.
The final letter of 'match' is 'h'.
'row' after 'h' is 'hrow'.

'makes' is the link.
