A former West Bromwich Albion youth team player, the self-described 'athletic target man' dropped into non-league football with Rushall Olympic, AFC Telford United, Willenhall Town, and Hednesford Town. He won the Birmingham Senior Cup with Hednesford, before his goal scoring record won him a move to Football League club Macclesfield Town in May 2010. He was voted the club's Player of the Year for 2010–11, and won a move to Crawley Town in June 2011. He was named on the 2011–12 League Two PFA Team of the Year, and joined Peterborough United on loan in February 2012, which was made into a permanent move at the end of the season for £1.1 million.
He struggled with injuries and discipline issues in the 2012–13 season, and was loaned out to Ipswich Town in November 2012. The 2013–14 season was more positive, though he was still allowed to join Bristol City on a four month loan in January 2014. He joined Oxford United on loan in September 2014, before he was sold on to Shrewsbury Town in February 2015. He helped Shrewsbury to win promotion out of League Two at the end of the 2014–15 campaign, before he was loaned out to Southend United in January 2016. His contract with Shrewsbury was cancelled in August 2016, and he subsequently signed with AFC Wimbledon. He switched to Port Vale in July 2017.

Barnett began his career as a youth player with West Bromwich Albion but left The Hawthorns after not being offered a professional contract. He instead moved to Rushall Olympic, making his Southern League Division One South & West debut at the age of 19 in a 3–1 defeat to Clevedon Town. He ended the 2005–06 season with nine goals in 41 appearances. His form at the start of the 2006–07 season, scoring nine goals in 16 appearances in all competitions, led Northern Premier League Premier Division side AFC Telford United to sign Barnett in October 2006 in exchange for Dean Perrow joining Rushall on a one-month loan deal. However, he fell out of favour at the New Bucks Head and left to join Willenhall Town at the end of the season.
He spent the 2007–08 season with the "Lockmen", finishing as the club's top scorer with 22 goals, before he joined Hednesford Town. He scored 28 goals in all competitions during his first season, helping the "Pitmen" to win the Birmingham Senior Cup for the first time in 73 years with a 2–0 win over Stourbridge. He scored 26 goals in 53 games across the 2009–10 campaign to helped Hednesford qualify for the Southern Premier Division play-offs.
In May 2010, Barnett moved to League Two side Macclesfield Town, joining former Hednesford team mate Ross Draper at Moss Rose. He made a goalscoring debut on the opening day of the 2010–11 season in a 2–2 draw at Stevenage. He initially signed a one-year deal with an option for a second; the option was quickly taken up by the "Silkmen" after he enjoyed a successful start to his league career. However manager Gary Simpson admitted that "if he keeps playing like that we'll struggle to keep hold of him". Barnett was voted by Macclesfield Town supporters their Player of the Year for 2010–11 after scoring 13 goals in 51 matches.
Barnett signed for newly promoted League Two side Crawley Town for an undisclosed fee in June 2011. He scored the "Red Devils" first ever Football League goal on 6 August, opening the scoring in a 2–2 draw with Port Vale at Vale Park. Barnett and Crawley manager Steve Evans were nominated for Player of the Month for August and League Two Manager of the Month for August respectively, but lost to Mark Arber and Andy Scott. Barnett scored his first brace for the club against Bradford City on 16 September. His brace against Bradford attracted interest from other clubs. He went on to score a total of 14 goals in 33 games for the club in the first half of the 2011–12 season. Blackpool had a bid accepted for Barnett, but the move fell through over personal terms. Despite leaving Crawley Town, Barnett was nominated for the League Two Player of the Year, but lost out to Matt Ritchie. He was also named on the PFA Team of the Year for League Two.
On 21 February 2012, Barnett signed on an emergency loan deal for Championship side Peterborough United, with a permanent move worth £1.1 million agreed for the start of summer transfer window. Four days later he came off the bench to score on his debut in a 1–1 draw at Doncaster Rovers. After the match, manager Darren Ferguson described Barnett's goalscoring debut as one of the best he had witnessed. Two weeks later, on 10 March 2012, Barnett had scored three goals in three consecutive matches, bringing his tally to four. At the end of the 2011–12 season, Barnett joined Peterborough United on a permanent basis.
Barnett endured a poor start of to the 2012–13 season as he suffered a hamstring problem, meaning he missed the first three matches. After his return against Birmingham City, Barnett made a reckless challenge on Greg Cunningham during a 2–1 defeat to Bristol City, which resulted in Cunningham being stretchered off; Barnett was booked rather than sent off – much to City manager Derek McInnes's frustration. Barnett scored his first goal of the 2012–13 Championship campaign with a header at Barnsley on 2 October, ending five games without scoring.
On 12 November, Barnett was transfer-listed, along with three other players, after breaching club discipline rules during an unsanctioned night out. Barnett and Nathaniel Mendez-Laing also received a police caution following the incident. Shortly after being transfer-listed, he joined Ipswich Town on loan until January 2013. Ipswich manager Mick McCarthy said that "the scouting reports have all said if you can get him until January he will be excellent." However Barnett's loan spell ended after three appearances when he suffered a knee injury during training on 13 December.
After returning on loan from Ipswich Town, Barnett continued to be left out of the Peterborough squad due to injury, but by mid-February manager Ferguson had forgiven Barnett and allowed him to make a return to the first team. Barnett found himself playing a smaller role in the first team, spending time on the bench in several games. Peterborough were relegated from the Championship to League One at the end of the 2012–13 season, and Barnett was placed on the transfer list by the club, along with four players.
Barnett made his first start in over six months in the opening game of the 2013–14 season, a 1–0 win over Swindon Town at London Road. Three days later he scored his first goal in over ten months, in a 5–1 win over Colchester United in the first round of the League Cup. He went on to add six league goals to his tally with strikes against Notts County, Tranmere Rovers, Crewe Alexandra, Bristol City, Preston North End and Port Vale.
On 8 January, Barnett joined Steve Cotterill's Bristol City on loan for the remainder of the 2013–14 season. He scored his first goal for the "Robins" on 11 February, in a 3–1 win at Leyton Orient. It would prove to be the only goal from his 17 League One appearances during his spell at Ashton Gate. Upon returning to Peterborough, Barnett was told to find a new club, as per United's policy for players entering the last year of their contract.
On 2 September, Peterborough chairman Darragh MacAnthony said that he was "stunned" that Barnett and his agent did not complete a move to League Two side Oxford United in time before the transfer window shut. Eight days later Barnett joined Oxford on loan for 93 days. He made his debut on 13 September, starting in a 1–1 draw away at Exeter City. Three days later he scored his first goal for the "U's" in a 3–1 win over Accrington Stanley at the Kassam Stadium. On 4 October, Barnett was sent off for two bookings in Oxford's 1–0 home win against Newport County. Two weeks later, after returning from injury, he opened the scoring in a 2–0 home win against Tranmere Rovers. In his last three games for Oxford, Barnett scored four times, including a five-minute brace on 6 December as the team drew 2–2 with Tranmere in the second round of the FA Cup. Oxford manager Michael Appleton said he would try to re-sign Barnett at the end of his spell, but admitted that he would face competition from other clubs.
Barnett joined Shrewsbury Town on a two-and-a-half-year contract on 2 February 2015, for an undisclosed fee understood to be around £100,000. He made his debut five days later, replacing Mikael Mandron in the 57th minute and netting in the 85th to rescue a point in a 1–1 draw with Southend United at the New Meadow, thus preserving Shrewsbury's unbeaten home run. After seven subsequent games without a goal, he scored the final goal of a 4–1 away win over Morecambe on 17 March after coming on as a substitute for Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro with five minutes to play. On 6 April, after replacing Akpa-Akpro at half time, Barnett scored the only goal of the game to defeat Mansfield Town at Field Mill, connecting to Mark Ellis' cross in the 50th minute. Five days later, as a late substitute again for Akpa-Akpro, he hit an added-time half volley to conclude a 4–0 home win over Exeter City. The "Shrews" secured runners-ups spot to gain promotion out of League Two at the end of the 2014–15 season.
Barnett fell out of favour at Shrewsbury following their promotion to League One, and manager Micky Mellon handed him just one start in November and December. He was allowed to join divisional rivals Southend United on loan until the end of the season in January 2016. He scored on his "Shrimpers" debut in a 4–2 defeat at Swindon Town, and found the net four more times during his loan spell as Southend finished the season in mid-table. Despite declaring that he saw his future away from Shrewsbury Town, he returned to his parent club the following pre-season. Southend manager Phil Brown looked to sign Barnett permanently in the summer, but instead opted to go for a cheaper option and signed Nile Ranger. His contract was cancelled by mutual consent on 1 August 2016, despite having a year left to run.
Barnett signed for League One club AFC Wimbledon on 3 August 2016. He scored his first goal for the "Dons" in a 2–1 win at Charlton Athletic on 17 September. He started just 11 league games throughout the 2016–17 season however, claiming five goals from a total of 44 appearances, before he secured his release from the Kingsmeadow after speaking with manager Neal Ardley.
Barnett signed a two-year contract with newly-relegated League Two side Port Vale in July 2017. However he suffered a serious hamstring tear in a pre-season friendly which manager Michael Brown said would take "months not weeks" to recover from. He made his debut for the "Valiants" on 9 September, in a 1–0 defeat at Coventry City.
Style of play
Barnett describes himself as an 'athletic target man' forward, able to use his athleticism to get on the end of a cross and his strength to hold the ball up. In February 2012, Peterborough United manager Darren Ferguson said that Barnett was "technically very good, has decent pace and he is one of the best strikers in the air that I have seen for a while".
