Cron job leaving files behind

Hi all,
I have a cron job that runs a php script using wget (job.php)

However, everytime the cron runs it creates a version of the script and leaves it behind in the root, for example job.php.1, job.php.2 etc, over time this accumulates into hundreds of files.

Is there a way to stop this happening?
