The Brewers, currently third in npower League Two, overcame Morecambe 3-2 to equal a club record of eight successive home wins to make it four victories on the bounce for the first time as a Football League club.
But Rowett confessed: "I was a bit worried about this one and seriously thought about making a few changes.
"In the end that was difficult because we've been in such good form and winning games, so I decided to go with the same team.
"I was a little bit edgy and thought we might lack our usual energy, but as it was we stuck at our game great up until the 80th minute.
"They made it a little bit of a squeaky bum time with the two late goals, but up to that point we were terrific.
"We possibly just stopped doing the things that got us 3-0 up and needed to be just a little bit more ruthless.
"We gave a silly goal away and that gave Morecambe a chance, but I'm not complaining too much because we saw the game out to continue our phenomenal run of results."
