After losing team talisman Grant Holt, supporters will be looking to Van Wolfswinkel and Hooper, who could make his debut against Brighton today, to fill the void.
Hughton will demand that the duo put the team first.
He said: "It's not just about scoring goals. This is a very tough division.
"What they first have to be is a good team player. "What he has got on his CV is that he's used to scoring goals.
"It's for us to make sure we have the right combinations to give him the opportunity to score goals."
