Though Teden Mengi and Jacob Brown scored the goals to give Rob Edwards' side a famous three points, it was the heroic defensive performances from goalkeeper Thomas Kaminski and captain Tom Lockyer that were the bedrock of the victory.
Alan Shearer, the Premier League's all-time top scorer and Hall of Fame inductee, said both players were crucial to their success as he names them in his Team of the Week.
