Hughes is certain the Coates family will back him in the transfer market this summer when a recognised goalscorer will be top of his wish list.
He told The Sentinel: "I haven't really been given (a total in) pounds, shillings and pence, but if I go to the owners with a good case for certain players then they will try to back me, I'm sure.
"It's not a case of them trying to move the goalposts. I knew exactly when I got the job here what the ball park figure was."
