CHORLEY missed out on the chance to go second with a poor performance at Westfield Lane.
After dominating possession for the opening 45 minutes the Magpies took the lead just prior to half time thanks to an own goal, but Frickley wanted the game more in the second period and the 18th place side recorded their first league win since late November.
Despite bossing the ball for the majority of the opening half Chorley carved out few chances on what was at best described as a ploughed field of a pitch.
Andy Teague force a save from veteran keeper Steve Dickinson from a Tom Ince corner midway through the half and Dickinson was again in action toward the end of the half saving a deep cross, however he was unable to prevent Ben Turner from turning an Ince cross into his own goal on 41 minutes.
With the lead going into the second half you would have though Chorley would build on this, but Frickley had other ideas and from the restart they controlled the game.
Stuard Ludlam celebrated his birthday with the equaliser, heading in a cross on 75 minutes, then 5 minutes later Jamie Vermiglio pushed over Ollie Ryan in the box and James Ashmore made no mistake from the spot.
Chorley’s only chance of poor second half was another Teague header which went wide.
So Frickley gain revenge for our six-nil win back in August and it is now 18 years since the Magpies were successful in this cold part of Yorkshire
