Hughes scoffed at Unitedâ€™s creativity on the day.
"In terms of what we produced and chances created, I felt we could have been 4-1 to the good with our first-half performance," he said.
"They didnâ€™t create much apart from the key moments. We deserved something. We had a game plan, it needed people to do the hard yards and affect the game.
"We took the game to United. If they are honest, theyâ€™d have to admit they were lucky to take all three points. Set-plays got them on level terms and then their winner was a stand-up cross."
