It only took a better looking Rovers side seven minutes to take the lead in this game with a great strike from Murphy in front of a sparse crowd.
Grant Hanley added a second after the hour mark when he bundled home and that completely knocked the wind out of the sails of the visitors, what wind there was, they looked a poor side.
So it's now three wins on the bounce for Bowyer, but his praise was reserved for Murphy.
"It was a great start for us and a good strike from Danny. Since myself and Terry (McPhillips) have come in and had to look after the team, Danny has been brilliant," Bowyer told reporters.
"His support for us has been magnificent and we can't praise him enough. His goal was good and he reminded the lads he's won the FA Cup with Liverpool so he's been great for the lads and he's been great for us. We'd be daft not to call on his experience."
