Jones, who was sent to the stands after a melee between the two dug-outs, saw his prevail courtesy of goals from Leroy Lita, Danny Pugh and Michail Antonio.
"Things happen within a game, the sending off was pivotal in it as well - and deservedly so, the lad stamped on him," said Jones.
"Then I just felt every challenge we made they (Brighton) were trying to even it up and I didn't think that was right and that's what the fracas was over. It's handbags at the end of the day, it's done and dusted now, it's over.
"I think the referee did the right thing just to calm it all down because it just would've just carried on at the end of the day. I'll see what he puts in his report and if he gets it right."
Jones added: "I'd rather talk about the game and the result and how important it was and how well we played. I thought the players did themselves proud which is a bonus."
