Baker played the full 90 minutes as Rob Page's side recorded a 2-1 victory in their European Championship qualifier.

Bridgend-born Baker, who has played three times for the Owls this season, was deployed in a defensive midfield role. He worked tirelessly in the centre, making a number of good tackles and he kept things simple in possession.

Forward George Thomas, on loan at Scunthorpe United from Leicester City, bagged a first half double to put Wales in control at Bangor's Nantporth Stadium.
