Kick-off is at 15:00.

Pirates reported on their official website that the midfielder would be out of action for up to six weeks.

“Initially we thought it was not a serious injury but scan results revealed that he is definitely not fit to play,” revealed club physiotherapist John Williams.

“We will have to give him at about six week or so to see how he responds to treatment.”

Sunday's second semi-final will see Platinum Stars face Wits at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium, also at 15:00.
