Broken iPad 3 LCD plug in strip ...HELP ME!

So....

I was working on a iPad 3 wifi at work in my free time...(I work at a phone reapair store in my home town) and i've never fixed an iPad before. I was on this website following the repair guide for an iPad 3 and I seem to have broken the retaining strip and some of the plug in "prongs" have fallen off and I cannot what-so-ever plug back in the LCD. I really need some answers to see if i can ever salvage whats left of this iPad. Answers and help are needed and I will be ever so GRATEFUL.

It is fairly common on this ipad model for that connector to break. This connector can be replaced. It requires micro soldering experience.
