Both sides then hit the woodwork – Daniel Barrett went close for the Owls with a glancing header.
Clee equalised on 30 minutes when Luke Mascall latched on to a cross and curled the ball under the goalkeeper.
The Owls went close to taking the lead early in the second half through efforts from Marc Cooper, Lee McFarland and Tim Lowe.
But Barton retook the lead on 72 minutes through Alex Sherwood's glancing header.
Substitute Jack Debnam was denied an equaliser by a superb save from Barton's goalkeeper – a stop that proved crucial as the visitors retook the lead on 78 minutes when, after Owls stopper Scott Drury failed to gather the ball, Gareth Owen tapped home into an empty net.
With one minute remaining, Josh Schofield broke clear and slotted past Drury to wrap up the game for Barton.
