Season summary

In November 1998 after a poor start to the season, Mark Hateley departed the club and Warren Joyce was asked to stand in as caretaker manager.

Hull soon made the appointment permanent with Joyce taking on the dual role of player-manager. At the time of his appointment, the Tigers were rooted to the foot of the Third Division table and looked to be heading out of the Football League – and into bankruptcy. However, under Joyce's stewardship, Hull staged a remarkable turnaround and achieved survival with games to spare; Hull City fans christened this season "the Great Escape".

Final league table

  • NB: In the Football League goals scored (F) takes precedence over goal difference (GD).
