He scored his first goal for the club on 25 November during a 1–3 loss to SC Cambuur. The loan was ended on 2 January 2017, with Faupala having played 4 games.
On 31 January 2017, Faupala was loaned to EFL League One side Chesterfield until 30 April 2017. He made his debut on 4 February, playing 90 minutes against Oldham Athletic. He scored his first goal for Chesterfield in his second match, a 3–1 loss to Northampton on 11 February.
