QPR remain without a win despite a summer spending spree that saw Hughes bring the likes of Esteban Granero and Julio Cesar to the club.
The west Londoners are second from bottom of the table, but Hughes was happy with his team's performance.
"I thought we deserved to win, absolutely," the Rangers boss said.
"In the first half we dominated proceedings. It was only 1-0 because of Brad Friedel.
"Then they went 4-4-2 in the second half and tried to press the game, they got a break at the right time obviously with an own goal which lifted them."
