Hearts win protest against Kotoko

The Disciplinary Committee of the Ghana Football Association has upheld a protest lodged by Accra Hearts of Oak against Kumasi Asante Kotoko for the use of striker Obed Owusu in the Week 25 Premier League fixture.

The Phobians won the landmark protest after it was ruled that striker Obed Owusu was indeed not qualified to have played the match which Kotoko originally won 2-1 at the Accra Sports Stadium over accumulated cautions.

Accordingly, Hearts of Oak have been adjudged winners of the match they originally lost, and have also lost credited with three goals.

Kotoko, on the other hand, have been six points which plunges them right into the relegation dogfight as they will be dropping to 15th on the league log.

The landmark decision was made by the GFA’s Disciplinary Committee on Tuesday having gone through all supporting documents of the opposing clubs.
