6 Speed gearbox can’t fill with oil

Hi I’ve just purchased a 2002 r53 and when doing a service I tried to do a gearbox oil change the previous owner looks like he as attempted to undo the oil fill plug and ruined the plug the drain one comes out ok,If I drain the oil is there any other way I can get oil into the box like through a speedo drive or other means
Thanks
