"It took a while for him to find his feet but he has been good for us. Hopefully, he can have a big game against them to show them what he can do," Barker said.
"He is a quality player and I think he will want to show that he will be ready to make an impact for them next season.
"In hindsight, they would have probably liked to keep him for the season but we moved at the chance to get him on loan."
Stellies have a difficult schedule in the seven remaining league games where they will meet the big three - Sundowns, Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates.
Despite the daunting programme, they are not intimidated.
"We have a few home games in those remaining games. We have seen in the PSL that the bigger teams are not guaranteed any points," Barker said.
