Cannot make secure fixing to internal wall

Hi There

I'm trying to recess a shower mixer valve on an internal wall of
perforated bricks. Theres a fixing bracket that needs to be recessed
about 5cm inside the wall and there is 2 holes + raw plug fixings for
this.

The problem is that the internal wall is made of perforated bricks and
so I cant get a good fixing.

Im guessing that I need to somehow fill the area behind with a filler/
resin type compound in order to screw into

Please help!!!

make the holes big to give lots of purchase. Dont use a wood plug for a
shower. Resin is strongest as it bonds to the brick, and doesnt tend to
break it.

Do you mean foamed concrete by any chance? If so drilling a hole,
filling it with hot melt plastic from a glue gun and then pushing the
screw in can be very effective.
Damned clever idea. I'll remember that one - thanks!
