Since the repair seems to be in a traffic area, it may be difficult to keep the edges down putting the old piece of lino back in.
This is a little bigger project, but you may consider taking out a larger section of lino and replace it with new. My lino (all of it) was replaced with new and didn't have to remove any cabinets, walls, etc. (had some floor moisture damage). Just cut out the old lino along the outer edge of the cabinets, walls, etc., but cut out the lino in large sections and use as a template for the new lino. When the new lino is installed just use stained quarter round to trim of the edges along the cabinets (holds the lino down as well). The lino was tacked when it went under any carpeted areas.
My lino isn't glued down, so I don't have to worry about the lino splitting do to temp swings (Jayco has gone back and forth on using glue, or no-glue). I had one small area a year later after a hard winter that started to get a little high spot, so I just remove the quarter round and rolled the lino, re-attached the quarter round... been fine since.
A couple of pics of the new lino & quarter round trim in my TT........:
IMO, the quarter round trim actually looks better than without!
