I am sorry, I do not do this crossword, so cannot really comment, except that if roost is correct, I do not get the clue, either.

might refer to the phrase "chickens have come home to roost" which means, you are being punished now for something you did in the past - comeuppance.

O che(guevara) Oche = the line you stand on in a game of darts - rhymes with jockey, i think.
