UK Stocks-Factors to watch on May 6



May 6 (Reuters) - Britain's FTSE 100 index .FTSE is seen opening lower on Friday, with futures FFIc1 down 0.25%.

* EVRAZ: The British government said it had sanctioned Evraz, whose biggest shareholder is sanctioned billionaire Roman Abramovich, in response to Russia's invasion of Ukraine.

* MCCOLL'S: Struggling British convenience shop chain MCLSM.L said it was increasingly likely that the group would be placed into administration, a move that could put thousands of jobs at peril.

* PRIMARK: Primark has pledged to train an additional 125,000 smallholder cotton farmers in more sustainable farming methods in India, Pakistan and Bangladesh by the end of 2023.

* VIRGIN MONEY UK: British bank VMUK.L posted a jump in half-year profits, but disappointed some investors by not announcing a share buyback plan, sending its shares down 10%.

* TESCO: The trade body for Britain's pig industry told Tesco TSCO.L it needs to do more to support struggling producers or risk losing its UK pork supply base.

* GOLD: Gold prices edged lower, on track for a third straight weekly loss as the U.S. dollar and Treasury yields rallied on a hawkish U.S. Federal Reserve stance, with investors awaiting U.S. jobs data due later in the day.

* OIL: Oil prices climbed for a third straight session, shrugging off concerns about global economic growth as worries about tightening supplies underpinned prices ahead of an impending European Union embargo on Russian oil.

* FTSE 100: Britain's blue-chip index closed slightly higher on Thursday, supported by strong earnings from energy major Shell and a slump in sterling after the Bank of England (BoE) warned the UK economy was at risk of a recession.
