We travel to the Riverside in seventh place in the Barclays Premiership ahead of Steve McClaren's men on goal difference as the race for European qualification reaches boiling point.
But there is no thoughts from Ledley of going to Teeside looking for a draw. "No, we'll go there to win and to play our normal game," said the skipper. "It's not our style to go there looking for a draw.
"We'll approach it by going out and trying to win while at the same time knowing that a draw is good enough. It will be a tough game, an interesting game and a real test of character to see how far we've come."
Confidence is high after Sunday's 5-1 win against Villa and we travel north knowing one more victory will make it our best away record in terms of wins for 10 seasons.
"We haven't scored too many goals away from home but when you look at it, we haven't conceded too many either," added Ledley. "That's made a big difference. The defence has gelled quicker than a lot of people would have expected but we get on well on and off the pitch and that's helped."
Ledley King has stressed that we'll look to play our normal game in the key clash against Middlesbrough on Saturday.
