Following the last minute 2-1 defeat at home to Aston Villa and former manager Paul Lambert, the Norfolk club swiftly moved to cancel their end of season awards dinner set for Monday evening in a bid to focus all of their efforts on getting the required points to stay up.
"Turmoil is certainly the wrong word," said Hughton.
"We know we are playing in a very competitive division, there are clubs around us who are bigger than we are, with bigger budgets, and that is a reflection on how difficult this league is.
"Is it a time of frustration? Yes, because we don't want to be in the position we are in.
"Is it an anxious time? Of course it is, but it is only us who can do something about it.
"We need to make sure that by the end of these two games that we have the required points."
