He has played un­der Freck­ling­ton be­fore at Gains­bor­ough Trin­ity.

Wa­fula, who can also op­er­ate in a cen­tral strik­ing role, be­gan his ca­reer at Ch­ester­field and lived lo­cally as a young­ster in Dar­ley Dale, play­ing for Tans­ley Ju­niors.

He made his pro­fes­sional de­but for the Spire­ites in a 3-0 win against Northamp­ton Town in Jan­uary 2013, his only ap­pear­ance for them.

He played for Work­sop Town, Shaw Lane and Gains­bor­ough be­fore join­ing the Pil­grims in Fe­bru­ary 2018.

Freck­ling­ton will still be with­out mid­fielder Michael Wil­liams for to­day’s game as he is side­lined with a long-term in­jury. Harry Vince is also side­lined and Freck­ling­ton will be check­ing the progress of five more play­ers, in­clud­ing the Novem­ber fans’ player of the month Ross Dur­rant.

“Ross has a painful ab­duc­tor, Adam Yates and Nathan White­head have knee prob­lems while Tom Davie in his first game back on Tues­day (a 2-1 win against Belper Town in the Der­byshire Se­nior Cup) has an­kle lig­a­ment prob­lems,” said Frek­ling­ton.

“Lee Beev­ers has stud marks all up and down both legs. All will need to be as­sessed and we hope that some of them will make it.”
