Rioch was the Trotters manager the last time Bolton reached a major domestic final back in 1995 when they narrowly lost out to Liverpool in the Coca Cola Cup Final whilst also having a spell during his playing days with Villa and he says Sam Allardyce's side will have the edge over their Midlands opponents.
