Hughes believes the club’s recent form has given the West London side a better chance of survival than many people would have expected.
He said: “I think we have given ourselves a chance to stay up.
“I have said many times in recent weeks that with 10 games to go, given the opposition we had, many people thought we didn’t have a cat in hell’s chance.
“As it is we are still in a very difficult situation but we still have opportunities to get points on the board.
“I think in recent weeks we have shown that when we get it right we are a decent team.”
