Hughton hopes Ruddy gets his chance in England's friendlies.
"It would be nice to see John get some game-time," said Hughton to the Pink 'Un. "I'm not quite sure of what the approach will be of the England manager and how Roy plans to use Joe Hart in these coming games. John, like the rest of us, suffered a poor result last week but he has been excellent.
"He has been a regular member of that England squad and I personally would be delighted if he gets a chance in these next two friendlies."
