TONIGHT (Friday) Back FC face an acid test of their hopes of retaining the Lewis and Harris League title when they host Stornoway Athletic.

Aths have been in impressive form in the early weeks of the new season and are unbeaten in the league so far.

Back meanwhile lifted the first silverware of the season in last weekend’s ABC Cup but they fell to defeat on their own last league outing in Carloway.

The match between the two local football superpowers is taking place at Upper Coll with a 7pm kick-off.

Also scheduled for tonight are league matches between: Point vs Carloway and United vs Harris.
