Not going to happen, cut it out and replace.
I'd use 2, repair couplings and a new piece of pipe in the middle.
A repair coupling has not ridge in the middle so it can slip right over the pipe.
I hold it up and mark the pipe so I know it's going to be in the right place when glued.
The repair coupling I'm talking about is PVC not just a hubless connector.

how is a repair coupler glued ? seems to me that there is a chance of not getting a solid seal. as you can't put glue on the inside of the fitting.

Different glues for slower fuse time, do it all the time i will only use a rubber coupling when i have no choice or its temporary repair, i made my self a special little tool to work the coupling fast over pvc, not easy to do but certainly not impossible.
