Seakanyeng, Orebonye inch away from Botola 1 league

The duo of Botswana exports Kabelo Seakanyeng and Tumisang Orebonye plying trade for Moroccan Botola 2 side Olympique Khouribga is set for a photo finish in the Botola 2 league. 

With just three games before curtains of the league close, their side is placed second on the log table with the best two clubs earning automatic promotion to the elite league.

Khouribga emerged victorious in their last encounter against relegation threatened Chabab Ben Guerir while top of the table JS Soualem brushed aside Racing de Casablanca with a five-nil walloping.  

While JS Soualem are four points clear at the top of the table, Khouribga are three points ahead of challengers Olympique Dcheira. In their last five matches, Khouribga played to three consecutive draws and two consecutive wins while Dcheira won three and drew two matches.

Fourth placed Wydad Fes are also on a winning streak with three consecutive wins while top table JS Soualem won four and drew a single match. In their last three encounters, Khouribga will play away to 10th placed Racing de Casablanca followed by another away encounter against log leaders JS Soualem and play their last match at home against unpredictable Ittihad Khemisset placed 6th on the log table.

While JS Soualem needs three points to cement their promotion, the log leaders will play their last matches against struggling Chabab Atlas Khenifra and Chabab Ben Guerir in their last match while promotion contesters Dcheira will be up in arms with Chabbab Ben Guerir, Racing de Casablanca and close curtains against relegated Widad Temara.
