Norwich managed a morale-boosting win against West Ham United on Saturday.
"You all know there has been pressure on the manager," he said. "But the boys have got to take a great deal of that as well because if we're not putting the ball in the back of the net it's up to us.
"He [Hughton] can't wave a magic wand and try and make everything right, it doesn't work like that.
"We had to work on the training ground to put that right. As soon as you cross the white line your biggest aim is to try and better your opponent that's in front of you."
