The Seasiders are sitting pretty in sixth heading into the international break but it could have been better as Tom Ince, son of manager Paul, missed a decent chance to win it late on.
"A goal could have changed the game - it was what it needed," said Thompson. "We just needed that bit of quality in the final third and that's what the game was lacking.
"From set plays we were trying to get it in the box but we couldn't find our strikers and it just ended up as two teams cancelling each other out.
"We had chances - we had the one with Thomas at the end which fell to him on his right peg - but there was a lot of huff and puff in the final third but not a lot of quality.
"It was a run-of-the-mill game, wasn't it? It needed a goal to liven it up.
"The pleasing thing is that we've kept another clean sheet. We will go into the international break and it gives us a chance to get the squad players up to speed. Hopefully the international lads will come back injury free.
"We have got two weeks now where we can hopefully get some games arranged to get the fringe players up to speed and get 90 minutes working with them. We are pleased with where we are and hopefully we can keep where we want to be."
