Unusual Drywall Patch Sitatuion

I am reconfiguring some electrical in a wall and have had to drill a couple of pass though holes in studs for romex and conduit. One of the holes gouged the inside of the drywall that faces the other side of that wall. It is about an inch long gouge that is about 1/4" deep. What can I do to strenghten that so it does not open on the other side. I can't get to it well but I can probably get some hotmud in there and affix some paper on top of it. It hasn't poked through so if I just get some material in there, is the paper on the outside of the wall which is already painted, enough to keep it intact. Thanks.

Might work OK. Or maybe put some furniture in front of the soft spot anf be more careful next time. Good luck.
