Hughes saw City crash to a 3-0 FA Cup defeat to Nottingham Forest on Saturday.
But chief exec Garry Cook said: â€śMark is part of building the club, from the playing side right through to making this a great place for employees.
â€śWhat we donâ€™t do is sit around worrying about what happens if it goes wrong.â€ť
Cook moved swiftly yesterday to back his beleaguered manager following one of the biggest cup upsets in recent seasons.
He added: â€śOnce we get through the first window, when Markâ€™s impact will be able to advance the future of the football club, things will start to settle down.
â€śMarkâ€™s plans and the way he is running the team are going to build and change and the confidence will start to build.
â€śWe will bring people here who want to see the club move forward and the fans will ideally take to them because theyâ€™re committed to the club.â€ť
