The Canaries, who hold a six-point cushion over the bottom three, head into tomorrow's clash against Everton at Carrow Road having lost just once in the last five league games.
However, four of those have been draws - and the last two goalless. Indeed, Hughton's men have scored just once in six outings, including a blank in their shock home FA Cup fourth-round defeat to Luton.
The Norwich manager accepts that will have to change if his men are to keep safe distance over the battle for survival.
"We have looked solid as a unit and I can't fault the lads' work ethic. Everybody is putting in a real shift for the team," said Hughton, whose side last won on December 15 against Wigan.
"But we perhaps just need to be that little bit more creative, we certainly need to be taking our chances and perhaps need to be a bit more of a threat in the final third."
