Hughes goes on the defensive

"If you look at the other managers around me in the league, a lot of plaudits are given to them and I don't get many," said Hughes. "The point I'm making is that the other managers in similar positions to us have been given accolades for the jobs they have done, and rightly so. Roy Hodgson at Fulham has been ­mentioned as a possible for manager of the year. ­Gianfranco Zola and Steve Clarke at West Ham have done a great job and got four-year contracts while Harry ­Redknapp has been labelled a miracle workerat ­Tottenham because he has dragged them up the league. I am just the one in the middle."
