The centre back has been a regular fixture for the Buccaneers this season – he missed five of the 25 league matches.
Pirates are currently third on the log – one point behind second-placed Supersport Unityed – and a win will move them to the second spot.
Cape Town City beat Orlando Pirates 2-1 the last time two sides met in January.
Brice Ambina and Thabo Nodada, who were sent off against Mamelodi Sundowns and Amazulu respectively, will miss the match due to suspension.
