Nottingham Forest won 2-1 at Coventry City to ease the strain on their fight against relegation.
The Reds fell behind after Maxime Biamou fired the Sky Blues into the lead.
Lewis Grabban equalised five minutes later, with his third goal of the season.
Forest won the game courtesy of a Michael Rose own goal, with the City defender turning a Cyrus Christie cross past his own keeper.
One man who did impress for the Reds was debutant James Garner.
The 19-year-old checked in from Manchester United at the weekend and was handed a start by Hughton.
His range of passing was superb with his forward thinking approach a real shining light.
Forest have struggled with injuries in midfield of late and Garner coming in and doing well was a real bright point.
He did show some signs of ring-rust but having been a peripheral figure on loan at Watford that was to be expected.
Following the 90 minutes Forest supporters took to Twitter to discuss his first appearance in the Garibaldi.
They were largely impressed and are excited to see what the future might hold for the youngster at the City Ground.
Forest head to Wycombe on Saturday looking for another big three points as they battle to avoid relegation.
After a strong start, plenty had him down as their Man of the Match and here is what fans were saying on Twitter.
