Hearts of Oak say they are ready to challenge the protest being launched by Aduana Stars even though they are yet to be officially served.

The Phobians clinched a famous 1-0 win over Aduana in Dormaa but the Fire club are claiming the points from the board room using an earlier disciplinary case against Hearts as their basis.

According to Aduana, Hearts must be made to forfeit the points they won on the field of play for their failure to pay a fine slapped on them for the wrongful dismissal of coach David Duncan.

But Hearts of Oak chief Neil Armstrong Mortagbe has laughed off these claims and says the club is ever ready to challenge the case even though they are yet to be served.

Officially as a club we have not been served,” Hearts managing director said at a press conference on Monday.

“This is something that we’ve heard since [last week] Wednesday but surprisingly we have not been notified officially.

“As and when we are served we will make our position known.

“What is being discussed is fathom to us, it is a shadow and perhaps a function of the atmosphere.

“It is surprising that a protest supposedly filed on Wednesday hasn’t reached us on a Monday.”

Aduana are basing their protest with the claim Hearts did not file for a stay of execution – the legal ground upon which they can withhold paying the fine to Duncan ahead of their appeal hearing.

The Hearts chief again says these claims are untrue.

“We filed for a stay of execution and duly received acknowledgment to that effect,” Mortagbe added.

“But we don’t grant the stay of execution. There are rules to be followed.

“So as and when the supposed protest reach us, we will fight is as a club.”
