Matthew Brian Barnes-Homer (born 25 January 1986) is an English footballer who plays as a striker for Rochdale. He is currently on loan to Rochdale from Conference side Luton Town.

Barnes-Homer started his career as a youth player at Wolverhampton Wanderers, where he spent three years. He went on to have short spells at three clubs in the lower leagues of the United States of America football pyramid during 2004, before returning to England with Aldershot Town. He then played for various non-league clubs in his local West Midlands region between 2005 and 2007 until League Two side Wycombe Wanderers signed him on a short-term contract in March 2007. He was released shorty afterwards, where he joined Conference National side Kidderminster Harriers. After a lean first season at the club, Barnes-Homer established himself as top scorer in the next campaign with 21 goals, averaging almost one goal for every two games.

A similar goal return during 2009 10 prompted interest from former Football League club Luton Town, who signed him in January 2010. He finished the 2010 11 season as Luton's top scorer with 19 goals.
