Brightwell insists he did not see the Perry incident and would have to view DVD evidence before commenting, but he was delighted with his team's performance.
He said: "Kyle has told us his side of the story and we will have to have a look at it.
"It's a shame to talk about a sending off again because the lads were different class out there. They battled tremendously hard for each other.
"We told them at half-time they would all have to dig deep and they certainly did that."
