Treloar will play his first game since round 10 after recovering from a hamstring injury, while De Goey has recovered from hand surgery and will line up for the first time since kicking five goals against Geelong in round seven.
Tom Phillips (hamstring) is unavailable and Max Lynch is the other to miss out.
A Magpies win would lock up a finals spot.
Gold Coast has made three changes from the team badly beaten by Brisbane on Wednesday night, with Ben Ainsworth (illness) the biggest name to miss out.
Veteran Jarrod Harbrow has returned after overcoming a shoulder injury he sustained against Carlton in round 13.
Nick Holman and Sean Lemmens join him as inclusions, while Connor Budarick's season is over with a broken collarbone and Sam Flanders has been dropped.
