Struggling Limerick FC travel to face second place Dundalk on Friday evening as attention turns back to action on the pitch.
Midfielder Cian Coleman is back from a one game from suspension, while defender Billy Dennehy (groin) returns from injury.
The last time the sides met at Oriel Park Limerick were on the wrong side of an eight-goal drubbing. Barrett says his side have improved since that loss back in February.
“We’re in a better position now. We’re playing a lot better, we have a more settled team and less injuries. We have to go up there and try and play on the front foot and try to be as positive as possible.”
