IS 200 not starting, help needed!

I just bought a Sportcross as a non starter.

It does fire when cranked, then immediately dies. It was showing A P0110 fault but when I cleared it, it didn't come back. If I hold the key at start it will try to fire with an occasional backfire through the throttle body.

Compression test shows cylinder one at 165psi and cylinders 2 to 6 at between 180 and 190 psi.

Valves are ok then.

Here on in I'm pretty stumped.

All ideas will be gratefully received !

TIA chaps! 😁
