Barnett was on the pitch for just 13 minutes in the 1-0 defeat by Hartlepool, having come on for John Welsh, when he was sent-off for a lunge on Neil Austin.[LNB]With the video evidence inconclusive, Tranmere decided not to appeal the decision and therefore the midfielder will be missing from this weekend's fixture.[LNB]However Welsh, who has been suffering from illness, has trained this week and should be available.[LNB]And Tranmere's prospects of a second victory in six matches have been bolstered by the return of Michael Ricketts. Ricketts is back in contention after recovering from a virus that has sidelined him in recent weeks.[LNB]The former Bolton forward has undergone intensive training this week in order to be fit and is set to be involved in the squad.[LNB][LNB]
