Hughes felt his side were unfortunate not to take something from the game.
He said: "I think we are a little bit disappointed.
"In the first half we restricted them to a few chances and the most problems we had were from set pieces. In general play I thought our shape was good.
"But we were working hard without putting them under enough pressure to affect the game going the other way.
"I thought we addressed that in the second half and really put a shift in and caused them some problems. I thought we were in control of the game.
"Obviously when we equalised it was a real body blow to concede so soon after that. If we had maintained the position at 1-1 maybe we could have caused them even more problems.
"I sensed there was apprehension in the stadium and that was filtering through to them.
"We fed off that but in the end we were disappointed. In general we can take positives from it."
