Orlando Pirates winger Thabo Qalinge is unlikely to recover in time for the club's final game of the year against Free State Stars at Goble Park on Saturday night.
According to an injury update on Bucs' website, the former Mpumalanga Black Aces attacker is still recovering from a groin strain which has kept him out of action for the last three weeks.
Meanwhile, Thembinkosi Lorch faces a late fitness test as he battles to shake off a hamstring complaint, while Nkosinathi Mthiyane has been ruled out of the league tie with a quad problem.
Pirates are second on the Premiership table with 20 points from 14 matches - five points behind Mamelodi Sundowns, who have two games in hand.
