Chippenham played their get out of jail card as they rescued a point five minutes from time after an out of sorts performance saw them equalise five minutes from time thanks to a mistake by home keeper Xavi Comas.
Chippenham dominated the early proceedings with Jake Andrews and Gary Horgan shooting wide and claims for a push on Andrews in the box going unanswered.
The youthful home team having made six changes from their weekend home defeat by Cinderford, then found some rhythm as Mason Bush's close range shot was cleared behind by Darren Chitty's legs.
From the resulting corner full back Richard Platt fired over the bar.
At the other end Rhys Baggridge headed over from a Matt Smith cross, whilst James Guthrie's free kick was plucked out of the air by Comas.
On twenty eight minutes Andrews's shot was saved by Comas before successive efforts from Smith and Alex Ferguson were blocked. Four minutes later the home side should have taken the lead as King shot against a post and successive follow up efforts from Bush and Kieran Turner drew two quality saves from Chitty.
On thirty six minutes Chippenham had their best chance of the half when Smith's cross saw Will Richards's header turned over the bar by Comas. The final action of the half saw former Spurs academy player Bush fire wide.
On fifty three minutes Smith drove wide and he was then replaced with Joe McClennan.
Five minutes later the home side took the lead when captain Jorell Johnson headed home from a corner.
Chances were then few and far between with King shooting wide on seventy two minutes.
The equaliser came as Comas flapped at Dan Bowman's deep cross and the ball spun off his knuckles and into the net.
The goal was almost in vain as King wasted a golden opportunity two minutes from time as he spooned over from close range.
In the final minute Bluebirds substitute Matt Jones hit a post but a flag was then raised for offside.
