It was a sorry sight for Hearts of Oak at the Accra Sports Stadium as the team were denied access to the playing field due to lack of payment.
Scottish trainer, Frank Nuttall, and his charges were left frustrated after they were denied entry to the playing field in what was supposed to be a training session for the Phobians.
According to sources, the team planned to train from 7:30 am today but the inner perimeter of the stadium was locked by the National Sports Authority.
Further checks revealed the NSA was demanding money before they grant the team access to the field.
The Phobians are preparing for their MTN FA Cup round of 16 clash against Young Wise slated for this weekend in Kasoa.
