A way to automate a SQL script in 2008 r2 Express

I have a small SQL 2008 r2 Express setup that has a few tables that I purge from within the management console now, by running a SQL script.  I would like to find a way to automate that to run each night.  Is there a tool in Express to do that or some other tool available to handle this?  Will SQLCMD work for this?  Thanks
