London: Frank Lampard was denied a winning start in his first match in charge of Chelsea as Bohemians struck late to earn a 1-1 draw in a friendly on Wednesday. Lampard named two separate line-ups for the first and second half in Dublin with a host of youngsters from the club's academy given their chance to shine.
