The mini-blip continued with a lacklustre second half performance the resulted in out dropped point tally reaching five in two games, and we dipped to a season long low of third in the league table.
Chorley got off to a good start when Steve Flitcroft fired accurately home from 20 yards.
The hosts who would probably give the Harlem Globetrotters a run for their money with the number of giants in the side, equalised when 6ft 7in striker Tom Denton netted surprisingly with a volley!
The scores stayed level for just three minutes as Jordan Stepien scored with the lightest of touches after excellent play from Matt Jansen.
In the final minutes of the first half the Magpies could and should have increased their lead, but the current lack of potency in front of goal would eventually cost the side two points.
Despite playing down hill after the interval it was a similar story to last week against Harrogate, as Wakefield got back into the game and eventually forced an equaliser when Robinson tapped home a right wing cross.
Despite Chorley throwing everything forward, a winner couldn’t be found by either side as Wakefield remained dangerous on the attack, while the height advantage at the back proved decisive as they nodded almost every ball into the box to safety.
Just over the M1, Chester notched a 3-0 win over Ossett Albion to increase their lead at the top to six points, Skelmersdale United crushed Cammell Laird at home 8-0 to leap above us on goal difference and Curzon Ashton joined Skem and ourselves on 30 points thanks to a 3-0 win at Clitheroe.
