    To move five points clear

    Regarding to the phrase below, could I assume that "to move clear" is a phrasal verb?
    and does it mean: to cancell the points or to lose the points?

    Winning on the Saturday had been a mammoth task because we had been 20 down against Everton, yet we won the game to move five points clear in the League.
