Norwich City will use Wednesday's clash against Leicester as a test of their Championship progress, Jack Stacey says. 

Enzo Maresca's side have been pipped as promotion favourites by many of the bookmakers since their Premier League relegation in May and they've started strongly - winning five of their opening six matches. 

That includes a recent 4-1 demolition of Southampton on Friday night and they travel to Carrow Road on Wednesday hoping to end the Canaries' perfect early season home record. 

City recorded a 1-0 victory over Stoke on Saturday, with Stacey netting the winner, but their Carrow Road progress will be tested when the Foxes arrive in Norfolk. 

A win for Norwich would see them leapfrog Leicester in the table and continue the positivity that is growing around David Wagner's side.

Stacey is looking to approach the game in a similar way to when they travelled to Southampton in August and drew 4-4, when it was seen by the squad as a test of their capabilities at the level. 

Leicester will be City's toughest test since that encounter with Russell Martin's side on the south coast - but Stacey is hopeful their desire to make Carrow Road a testing place for opposition will see them through. 

"They're a really good team. I think before the season you would have said that they will be a team that will be right up there," Stacey said after Saturday's win over Stoke. 

"It will be similar to Southampton away when we went there wondering how we would do against these teams. I think we showcased ourselves well there. 

"We don't want any team to come here and leave with any points. To achieve anything within a season, you have to have really good home form. We've shown a different side to our game (in that Stoke win) and we will need to do that again on Wednesday. 

"The atmosphere here really helps going into games. If we can keep up that record of making it really difficult for teams to come here and leave with points then we're going to be okay by the end of the season."
