Repair engineered hardwood from metal threshold and tack strip removal

Hello. I removed carpet in one room and found the engineered hardwood underneath to be in good conditon. Although, when I pryed up the metal threshold and tack strips, It chipped away at the flooring significantly. I attempted to use a stainable wood filler and red oak stain. Unfortunetly, I was not happy with the results. Im looking for a way to fill in the areas that were chipped away and then use a matching stain and graining tool to recreate the original look the best as possible. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. ThanksName:  1.jpg

Welcome to the forums!

Is that the filler in the first/top pic? How wide is the damage? Fillers don't often stain as well as the wood although it usually isn't noticeable on small repairs. It might be better to replace a board or two.
