Lingard hit all four goals in Brum's 4-1 win over Sheffield Wednesday.
He said: "To get a start today and four goals is great, my confidence is sky.
"I was proper nervous to be honest but as soon as I got the first goal I settled down and we started playing.
"I hope it’s not just a one off, hopefully I can keep providing goals and helping the team.
"It was my choice to come out on loan and get as much first team football as possible."
