Rovers' record striker found the back of the net for the club for the 25th time this season, scoring the only goal of the game in a hugely important 1-0 win at Ewood Park.
"It always happens, players scoring against their old clubs, but he's scored against quite a few clubs this season and long may that continue for us," said Bowyer after the game.
"I felt we were on top and when you are on top you must take you chances.
"I don't know how he has done it, it is a great finish from him, he's a real predator.
"After that it was a massive team effort defending from the front."
