Kee bagged a brace and provided a superb back-heeled assist for Zola's decisive strike, as Rowett's men recorded their first win in three matches.
"I told the front two before the game that they could win it for us as a pair - and that's what they've done," said Rowett.
"On their day they are a real threat and they were terrific this time. I just wish they were both on their day more often.
"Just look at the chances we created, an awful lot of them."
Zola has scored seven goals in 18 league appearances this season, while Kee has hit seven in 20.
