The England goalkeeper was back to his best for victory at West Bromwich Albion.
"I'm really pleased for John," said Hughton. "As a team you are hurting when you concede the goals we have but probably it hurts even more for John and the back four. I never doubt the ability he has got. He is a regular with England and that is not a coincidence. He is with England on merit. We have great faith in John and I thought he was excellent."
