Chris Shuker put Tranmere in front, but goals from Darren Byfield and Troy Deeney turned the game on its head.
Hutchings said: "It was a hard-fought win and it's nice to get the three points. We've been criticised for not scoring goals but we got three in this game.
"It was a good time for us to score the first just before half-time. Had Tranmere stayed ahead it might have been a different outcome.
"We've got to push on from here. We know we can do better. We want consistency in our performances."
