Hughes: Stoke squad have great room for improvement
Hughes is confident of seeing existing players step up to the plate next season after a first 12 months acclimatising to their new manager.
"They know what I'm about now and expect, so it's easier to work with them," he told The Sentinel.
"I've got a lot of trust and faith in this group, and I'd like to think they have a similar faith and trust in what I tell them to try to win games and be better players."
