Two Scott McDonald goals turned around a half-time deficit and gave the home side a fourth straight Championship success.
"I was pleased at half-time despite the Bolton goal because of the application, the attitude and the chances we had created," said Mowbray.
"I was even more pleased because the atmosphere in the dressing room at half-time was very positive.
"We all felt that if we could create and score the next goal then we could go on and win it and so it proved.
"We worked very hard to overcome the adversity in going a goal down and we bounced back and got the job done. I'm very pleased."
