"Having got this far and got into this division we absolutely want to stay there", Barber told Sky Sports News HQ.

"Obviously there's got to be a bit of balance with loyalty for the squad that have got us here, been so magnificent over not just this season but last as well, but obviously with one or two key reinforcements".

Despite the fans already in party mode, goalkeeper David Stockdale knows there are still games to be played and wants to finish the season as champions.

Albion missed out on automatic promotion on goal difference on the final afternoon of last term, but that is now a distant memory for Hughton and his men.

Daniel Pudil struck a first-half victor for Sheffield Wednesday as they saw off QPR 2-1 at Loftus Road to go fifth and remain in the driving seat for a play-off spot, having lost in the final last season.

Jackson Irvine's Burton Albion gave their survival bid a boost and leapfrogged Birmingham in the process, thanks to a 2-0 triumph, built around goals from Lloyd Dyer and Lucas Akins.

Despite the pressures of the job and the microscope that football fraternity is constantly under, Hughton is still very much in love with the game.
