Bradford skipper Simon Ramsden and midfielder Michael Flynn are both "two to three weeks away" from a return to first-team action.
Defender Ramsden has missed the last four games due to a calf injury sustained in the Carling Cup win over Nottingham Forest, while Flynn has yet to appear this season after a double hernia operation and Taylor admitted both players have been sorely missed.
Taylor told the club's official website: "I went to watch Barnet and Bury on Saturday and you could see that Bury have got more experience than us in the team at the minute. That's why not having the likes of Ramsden and Flynn is really hurting us.
"I think they're both still two to three weeks away and we've just got to get on with it."
City have won only one of their first four league games and Taylor added: "It's very early days, but we know it's not good. All we can do is be honest and prepare as well as we can."
