"It was a difficult game for us," added 59-year-old Dalglish.
You'd like the away goal but I'd say it's advantage us
"But circumstances dictated the way we played with the players we had available. Nil-nil is not the best result we could have got but it is not the worst either.
"There was a lot of value in the game. Soto [Kyrgiakos] got a game, Danny Wilson got a game and David Ngog got a start up front.
"Joe Cole was back in as well. The game in some ways served its purpose because the lads will gain great benefit from that and the young lads [from the youth team who travelled] have gained experience."
The only downside to the night was an injury to Fabio Aurelio in the first half.
"It is an adductor strain for Fabio but it's not too bad," said Dalglish. "That [central midfield] was the last place we wanted an injury but once that had gone that was it."
Veteran defender Jamie Carragher agreed with his manager's assessment.
"A goalless draw's always a decent result," he said. "You'd like the away goal but I'd say it's advantage us.
"We've been scoring some goals recently and we haven't done that tonight but in Europe it's slightly different, we're quite pleased with a goalless draw and it was good experience for a few players."
Sparta manager Jozef Chovanec said he was relieved that after such a long period of inactivity for his side that they had come away on level terms.
"It wasn't easy, we hadn't played in competition for two months, but we tried to do our best," he said. "The result would have been a matter of a single mistake, but neither team made one.
"The game was dominated by defence. It was hard to score."
