    Rather than using plywood ---------- which might rot if wet ------- go to a dollar store and pickup a cheap nylon cutting board.
    They come in various thicknesses and shapes ----- round , square or rectangular.

    When you find one the right size ------ lay the old one down and trace it onto the new pice. Then lay on the new one ( the one that's too small ) inside the larger traced outline ----- trace out the opening and mark the screw holes ------ cut and drill and you're done.

    Looks as though there are 2 stand offs to deal with ------- you might be able to cutoff the old ones and expoxy ( or duct tape ) them to the new piece ----- then and again it may not be a big deal if they were glued in place.

    Just a thought.

    I think there is a more simple fix. Just wad up a ball of duct tape and stick it to the wall. If you ever want to remove it use a little WD-40.

    You only need two tools in life - WD-40 and Duct Tape.
    If it doesn't move and should, use WD-40.
    If it shouldn't move and does, use the Duct Tape.

    All of you need to go to Duct Tape Anonymous meeting.
