Support team that's behind (8)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

backside

'behind' is the definition.
('backside' can be a synonym of 'behind')

'support team' is the wordplay.
'support' becomes 'back' (back is a kind of support).
'team' becomes 'side' (I've seen this before).
'back'+'side'='BACKSIDE'

'that's' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for backside that I've seen before include "Buttocks" , "Seat" , "Bottom" , "Behind" , "Rear" .)

I've seen this clue in The Telegraph.
