Hughes not panicking despite Stoke not winning single game
Mark Hughes remains confident about Stoke's prospects despite them having made their worst ever start to a Premier League season.
Hughes' men head into today's home clash against Bournemouth having taken only three points from their six league games so far, and they are still looking for their first top-flight win of 2015-16.
The Welshman has no doubt a points boost is required swiftly, but is not panicking about what he has seen so far.
"I don't think our performances are too much of a concern," Hughes said.
"We haven't got as many points as we would like, but for the most part I have been reasonably happy with the main part of our performances.
"If we look back we can maybe console ourselves in terms of what we produced in some of the games, even though we have also made individual errors.
"At some point in the season you will get a run where you go four, five, six games without a win. It is about the end of the season, and we are confident."
