On a freezing cold night with a gale blowing and a sloping pitch the Robins fell behind after nine minutes.
The Wigan defence failed to deal with a long ball launched into the area - there was more than a suspicion of a push on Chris Williams which allowed Holker striker Carl Pearson to nip in, completely miss his kick but get a second chance to finish from five yards.
With the wind behind them the Robins gained their composure, shored up their defence and took the game to the home side.
Despite a couple of sticky moments the defence looked solid against a very mobile forward line while the midfield played as we know they can. As we continued to attack the pressure eventually told as top scorer Chris McNally - back for his first start after injury - superbly hooked the ball home on 33 minutes after a flowing move.
After the break the Robins continued to dominate - with Ryan Small, Dean Callaway and McNally all going close - but were unable to break down a stubborn Holker defence.
With the clock tickng down Holker almost grabbed a winner but Jay Foulds saved superbly and a point was the least the lads deserved.
As more players return from injury the old Robin Park appear to be back.
With five games to go we now need a strong finish to the season in preparation for a vibrant pre-season.
This Saturday the Robins travel to Chadderton then play championship-chasing Stone Dominoes at the Robin Park Arena on Thursday 29 April kick off 8pm
