Hughes reckons it's so tight anything can happen and wants to try and get clear of trouble before the big shake-up at the end.
He said: "I can't remember it as a player or a manager that so many teams are as tightly packed as they are at the moment.
"But the positive is if you can get a couple of back to back wins you can go up places.
"That's our intention and if we can get another win with another home game to follow that it would move us significantly up the table."
