Swarbrick decided that areas of the Valley Parade pitch were unplayable after a heavy overnight frost and the games was called off shortly before the 3pm kick-off.
Taylor said: "I think it was a great decision by the referee. Unfortunately it is one area of the field that is affected.
"Much of the playing area is fine, which made it difficult for the referee. We informed Burton at about midday that there was some doubt about the match taking place.
"We left it until then because we thought the frost would come out of the ground much quicker. The referee was worried about injuries. That is what he told Paul (Peschisolido) and me."
