The match will hold inside the Liberation Stadium, Elekahia, Port Harcourt.
Kwambe completed a summer move to the Seasiders this term but has been plagued by injury concerns.
He was certified fit for the trip by the club’s medics, hence he made coach John Aigbogun’s cut for the trip.
Warri Wolves contingent comprising 18 players, technical crew members and backroom staff departed Warri on Wednesday for Port Harcourt.
