replacing tile on durock, how to repair part of durock board already on floor?

We're redoing kitchen, need to replace some of tile on floor. Have taken up old tile, some of the top of the durock board underlayment has broken up. What can you do do repair it before putting tile back down. We're talking about a samll corner, 6 " square. We are only replacing a a few tile due where new cabinets will sit. Tile floor was put down in existing kitchen and run up to cabinets, not underneath cabinets. New cabinets in one area are not as long as old ones so floor is without tile where stove and refrig will be. thank you for help.

Usually the thinset used during the tile install is enough--You could use some thinset as a patching material the day before you tile--if you wish.Mike-
