Knocked a hole in the PVC going to septic tank

1128 4
So I was digging and while I thought I was not too close to the main run outside to the septic tank, I was. Knocked a hole in the sch 40 pipe. I guess I need to cut a section out and replace? It's right near some major roots and won't be easy.

Any tips to make it easier? I know there will be a bunch of digging in the hard clay to have enough room to work with. Oh well...

Thanks in advance for any help from you guys who have done it.

Well...don't really need one there, it's about a foot or so from the septic tank, and there's a cleanout 10 feet away inside.

I saw a how to on another site, looks pretty easy after the digging, they used a flexible coupling on one part of the peice to replace.
