Klate, who notably won three Absa Premiership titles in his time at Matsatsantsa, will miss the encounter against his former team because of injury.
The 28-year old injured his knee in Pirates’ CAF Champions League loss to Al Ahly earlier this month.
“The guys that came back from Bafana are all fine, they had a full training session today [Thursday]. Daine Klate still has a problem, he is the only one that is doubtful,” said Pirates coach Roger de Sa.
“Obviously Patrick Phungwayo and Siyabonga Sangweni are still out for some time.”
Klate could make his return to action in the Sea Robbers’ Absa Premiership game against Maritzburg United next week.
