Speaking to STFC Player, Thompson described the build-up and finish to his strike.
"I've got to pay massive thanks to Yaser," he said. "His skill creates the opportunity for me. I was delighted to get the three points in that game and to cap it off with a goal is amazing.
"I was in the middle of the pitch and Nathan and Jordan told me push on. I was doing Yaser's job because he was on the left. He pulled off an amazing bit of skill then had the presence of mind to pick me out and, luckily enough, it hit the back of the net."
