New boss Geraint Williams went into the game at Wrexham in the knowledge that defeat would spell the end of his side's hopes of claiming at least a runners-up position with one game to spare.

But the home side never recovered from David Stephens' sending-off in the sixth minute for handball, after which Hovhannes Hambardzumyan struck the opener from the penalty spot.

Hambardzumyan missed a second penalty but Wales failed to fight their way back into the match, meaning next month's final Group Three trip to the Czech Republic is irrelevant to their hopes of qualification.
