How to get a cable to stay in the wall a little higher up?

We've had some wall lights fitted in our bedroom and the electricians fitted them but they don't do the remedial work to walls; which is fine 

I've done some filling but the cable sticks out at an annoying angle, which means when it gets the slightest jiggle it breaks off the filling below it

Ideally I'd like to use a flat head screwdriver to clear out 1cm more plaster higher up and fix the cable to the wall - is there some kind of u shaped bracket I can use for this? I don't think there is the sideways space for one of those ones you use outdoors with the nails in - any other solutions?
