The standard way to do this is to additionally index the reverse of all 
strings/tokens, potentially in a different field "reverse:", ie  index 
forward:abcd as well as reverse:dcba.  Then in queries of the form 
"*cd",  reverse the query to "dc*" so that you end up with "reverse:dc*"

in your example that would be "reverse:321-*"
