Use the toothpick (or similar) to gently push the fibreglass down into the resin, to encourage it to soak into the weave.
 
Take a bit more of the resin and drip it on top of the matting, to further ingrain the fibreglass into the board.
Tape the whole deal down with some  packing tape

Industry secret: if the ding is on a part of the board where the resin could drip out, take a piece of packing tape, place it over the whole area and smooth it down. This isn't necessary if the damage is in the middle of the board, as gravity would keep it in place, but on a rail (like in this case), the tape will keep it all from dripping/moving. It also applies pressure to the area, making the resin and matting become firmly anchored to the board.
