Blackburn have the incentive of a seemingly straightforward home game against Colchester United in the fourth round of the competition.
But, first, Rovers must negotiate a third round replay with Cardiff City following a 1-1 draw at Ninian Park on Saturday.
Hughes is not counting his chickens about beating Cardiff but admits the fourth round draw could not have been much kinder.
"We have still got a very difficult tie with Cardiff," Hughes told Sky Sports News.
"If we get through that, it's another home tie and as a manager and a football club in the FA Cup that's what you're looking for."
The Blackburn boss is also not in the dark about the merits of Colchester having sold Neil Danns to the League One side back in December.
He added: "We know a little bit about Colchester.
"We let one of our younger players go there on loan - Danns - he's now made it permanent.
"We have had contact with them. They're a good club and he's a good player."
