scottyt is on a distinguished road
you might get the epoxy to grab, depending to exactly what the hose is made out of. there are a couple other options here

first use it as it is and use 4200 to "glue" the fitting in with minimal screw purchase

next is to close the hole smaller and "glue" a longer tail on that you can get to below for the hose clamp

the last option is to close the hole smaller and use a crimp on hose clamp. they are much smaller, do an internet search on pex tubing to get an idea of what i am talking about. somebody should make a bigger version

watch this vid at about the 1 min mark
