Crawford and Gambin on the bench as Bees host Tynesiders in play-off chasing clash.
The duo have been unavailable for a number of weeks due to knee injuries but with Jake Hyde and Luisma Villa both out they make a perfectly timed return.
Nick Jupp keeps his place between the sticks but Mark Byrne and Elliot Johnson both miss out due to minor injuries.
Kieron Cadogan, Ahmed Abdulla and Curtis Weston form the Bees’ midfield with Keanu Marsh-Brown and Charlie Adams supporting Dani Lopez who spearheads the attack.

Former Bee John Oster starts for Gateshead with another former Barnet favourite Liam Hatch named on the bench despite scoring last time out against Forest Green Rovers.
