Hughes told fulhamfc.com: "The difference between last season and this season is massive so I think it would be good for everyone if we could do it. Looking back on the course of the season and how we've played, we've stabilised ourselves. There are very few games that we can pick out and say we didn't really play well.
"Even in the games where we haven't won or got a bad result we have given a good account of ourselves. I think where we finish in the league will be what we deserve."
