Hughton has admitted that the result against Albion was a missed opportunity for his side to put some distance between themselves and the bottom three, and has confessed that their match against the Whites is now shaping up to be Norwich's biggest of the season.
"We have taken a step backwards and we have to turn it around against Fulham next week. Losing today makes it an even bigger game," Hughton told reporters.
"At the moment, the Fulham game has become the biggest of the season. I understand frustrations and it is normal, but we have to understand it is us as a group and everybody is going to get us the results we need.
"It was an opportunity to get a gap between us and the bottom three and we are now fighting for our lives."
Norwich finish the campaign with games against Liverpool, Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal.
