The Cherries won promotion to the second tier for just the second time last term, with their previous stint back in 1987.

Eddie Howe's side have failed to put a run of results together, but still sit eighth after 11 games of the new season, just three points off the top six.

While Bournemouth will be determined to find consistency after the international break, Hughes believes they can be proud of their performance in the first quarter and the manner in which they have picked up their points.

"It has been a really good start and we've done it in a brave way. We have tried to take on the division playing a certain brand of football, which we hope is entertaining to watch," the 34-year-old told the club's official website.

"It's difficult to do that while getting results, but we've managed to do that enough times for it to have been a very good start to the season."

Hughes added: "This is a really tough division and we have been on the end of a couple of heavy defeats away from home. So for us to be eighth is a fantastic return."

Bournemouth face a major test after the two-week international break, with trips to Nottingham Forest and Leicester up next in the Championship.
