Boss Ronnie Moore would no doubt have preferred to have stuck with the starting XI which brushed aside Coventry 5-1 in a brilliant performance on Saturday, but Taylor picked up a red card 12 minutes from time for catching Franck Moussa in the face with his boot.
The defender now begins a three-game suspension and Ian Goodison's groin injury leaves Rovers shorn of central defensive options, meaning full-backs Liam Ridehalgh or Danny Holmes may have to move inside into more unfamiliar positions.
Club captain James Wallace scored against the Sky Blues, after nearly a year out with a knee injury, and is likely to make a cameo from the bench again, although the same ailment keeps Andy Robinson sidelined.
