Kevin Wilkin's men couldn't recreate the form that saw them secure a spot in the FA Trophy final and were 1-0 down inside 20 minutes following Alex Rodman's opener.

Wrexham equalised through a Rob Ramshaw own goal, but Lynden Gooch scored early in the second half and Steve Tommassen netted the second own goal of the game to give the team from the north east all three points.

The hosts dominated for much of the game but couldn't find a way through, before Lambe converted from a Callum Elder cross.

The Welsh Government says almost a third of households in Wales are in fuel poverty.

"In Wales we have been successful in delivering multiple benefits through our energy efficiency programmes, such as Arbed, including jobs, wider community benefits, training and advice for residents.

Our additional investment for the next financial year is £35m. I want the energy companies to see how effective our approach in Wales is and discuss how working together we can maximise the amount.. they invest in these schemes in Wales."
