Hughes insists he has no qualms over the police delivering their own team talk ahead of next weekend's potentially explosive FA Cup clash with Chelsea.
"If they feel that's necessary we'll do that," said Hughes, regarding the prospect of a pre-match talking to by the police.
"Safety of everybody is paramount and you are guided by the people who have an understanding of that and the risk factors that are involved. So we will cooperate fully in terms of security. That's very important."
