Botswana duo edge closer to promotion in Morocco


The Botswana duo of Tumisang Orebonye and Kabelo Seakanyeng are edging closer to promotion with Morocco’s Olympique Club de Khouribga with just three games to go.

The Botswana national team pair were both in action when OCK edged 13th placed Chabab Ben Guerir 1-0 on Friday night.

The result saw OCK, who were demoted at the end of last season, keep up pace with log leaders Riadi Salmi.

Salmi, who also won on Friday, have amassed 53 points from 27 fixtures while second placed OCK are four points adrift.

The top two spots in the Botola 2 division guarantee automatic qualification to the topflight while the third and fourth positions require a promotional playoff between them for a place in the premier division.

Seakanyeng, who previously had a stint with Chippa United, said OCK cannot afford to drop any more points at this stage.

“We have to work hard for that. We have to win our remaining games then will be promoted. I think we’ll make it,” Seakanyeng told FARPost.

The duo joined the former Premiership side at the start of the season and have previously made it clear they are eyeing a dance in the topflight.
