Bale: Tottenham will not underestimate Norwich

Tottenham winger Gareth Bale has warned his side against becoming complacent ahead of their trip to face Norwich City in the Capital One Cup on Wednesday.

The Welshman was on target as Andre Villas-Boas' men edged to a 2-1 win at Bale's former club, Southampton, on Sunday, a result that moved Spurs into the top four of the Premier League.

However, in spite of their recent good form, the winger was quick to stress that the north London club cannot afford to take their foot of the gas against the Canaries.

He told Tottenham's official website: "They're a team that works hard for 90 minutes and they're going to give us a hard time, so we'll have to be fully prepared.

"We'll have to sit down and have a look what their weaknesses are. Hopefully we can exploit them and come away with a good result."

The 23-year-old was less than enthusiastic in his celebrations after netting the opening goal against the Saints but the Wales international insisted that he was still delighted to find the net for the third time this term.

He added: "It was great to score and I wanted to get back onto the scoresheet after being out for a couple of games.

"It was a muted celebration out of respect for Southampton - I was there from the age of nine - but the most important thing was to get the three points to lift ourselves back into the top four."
