TORONTO, Sept 25 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index turned positive shortly after the open on Friday as oil and gas shares helped the market fight back from a lower start.

The index had opened in the red as gold prices pressured the weighty materials sector and Research in Motion RIM.TO shares dropped after providing a disappointing outlook.

At 9:58 a.m. (1358 GMT), the S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE was up 5.54 points, or 0.05 percent, to 11,291.30. (Reporting by Jennifer Kwan; Editing by James Dalgleish)
