I'm having a problem with two clues.
26 Bike in Highlands is comfortable (5)
I think the answer is SWARM (s-warm) but I don't see the definition. (there may be a misprint)
5Ac Food from Dickensian dissembler with no smell.
I think the answer Is P*C* but there may only be three letters (P*C)
Also can anyone give me a clue as to where to go next in this crossword as I haven't got a clue what's going on. Good to see the "Dons" in there though.

26,
A bike or byke in Scotland, are names for a wasps nest or a swarm of people.

Thanks Rusty that's great. I now have a completed grid and I guess KO goes in the two blank squares but I'm still stuck on where to go next.

I'm sorry, Unclued, but I cannot help you there, I'm afraid. I don't do/have the Listener crossword.
Good luck with it, anyway!

Leon - is there any pattern to the Anfield line? Also what about the other corrected misprints referred to?
Start at the P for KOP and look for a football related term / marking. Then look for the matching one down the other end and finally something else connected with a marking!

I'm still struggling with the bottom right-hand corner : I have : s**so* for 37a
**or* for 41a
p**se for 33d and
***st for 34d

Any hints welcome!

Barretter - here are some ideas for you.
37a Think of a small amount (3 letters) and then repeat
41a Unusual word starting with a Y!
33d Should get this now you have the Y
34d Misprint of TEN to make TEE. look up a musical instrument in Bradfords.
Hope that helps!

Thanks very much indeed for that, Unclued. I now have a complete grid but not much of an idea how to proceed any further. Perhaps something to do with field position at Kick-Off?
