Jones said: "This is probably the worst performance I've seen from a Sheffield Wednesday side.
"The goals we gave away were hard to swallow. I can only apologise to the fans for the performance we put in. They (the players) should go to the fans themselves and apologise.
"We began brightly but we then switched off. In a matter of a few minutes the game was all over.
"There too many wrong decision and too many people not on their game."
Commenting on Lingard, the Owls boss said: "We allowed him to impress. He had a dream debut. You have to stop him playing.
"You cannot allow him to get on the ball, turn and run at us. For some reason they allowed him too much scope.
"We were capable of getting back into the game but the smallest man of the pitch pushes people off the ball and gets his fourth goal."
