Curtain pole frustrations

Hi people
I'm a DIY noob so bare with me!
I have a wooden 2 part curtain pole and overnight one half of it fell down including the wall bracket that holds it up.
Where the bracket was screwed to the wall has left a gaping hole so I have to move the bracket along an inch or 2 and try and reattach it to the wall.
However I'm trying to drill into the wall to apply wall plugs with my cordless and the drill isn't going anywhere - I think there's a concrete lintel.
So what can I use to attach the bracket as I don't have a hammer drill?
Any advice appreciated

Ok thanks - I googled 2 part filler on a roll and all i found was wood filler?
Can you link me to the stuff at wickes or screwfix?
Again many thanks
No point trying to use the original holes as it fell down due to them being too shallow, you need an SDS drill which will drill easily [borrowing one from a friend is the cheapest option].
