Spurs are currently on a good run of good form; the White Hart Lane outfit have won five of their last six Premier League fixtures, a run of results which has lifted the North London based club to fourth in the table.
In contrast, Norwich have struggled in the early stages of this season and only managed to pick up their first win of the campaign with a somewhat fortuitous 1-0 win over Arsenal two weeks ago.
Despite the difference in form and quality of the two teams, Bale has urged his team-mates to avoid being complacent when they take to the pitch for their Capital One Cup clash and believes the Canaries have more than enough in their armoury to punish them.
"They're a team that works hard for 90 minutes and they're going to give us a hard time," Bale was quoted as saying by the official Tottenham Hotspur website.
"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 Wales international is expected to be rested for this game after his exertions in Sunday's 2-1 win over Southampton.
Bale, who came through the ranks with Southampton, may have been amongst the goalscorers in that game but the 23-year-old refused to celebrate after scoring out of respect to his former club.
"It was great to score and I wanted to get back onto the scoresheet after being out for a couple of games," Bale added.
"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."
Bale has made 10 appearances for Spurs so far this season, scoring three goals in the process, and will likely return for the Lilywhites when they host Wigan Athletic in their next Premier League fixture.
